In February 2020, we lost my dad to Pancreatic Cancer after a 16 month fight.  Dad was originally diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer in October 2018. It was a surprise because he went to his annual check ups with the most recent being the previous spring and completed them at Mayo in Rochester so he could receive the highest standard of care. One of the most complicated issues with catching pancreatic cancer early is that symptoms are not always present or may come and go. 

Pancreatic Cancer is a hard diagnosis to accept not only for the patient but their family and friends.  You go from living a normal life to your life revolving around the next appointment, the next time you can see your loved one, making sure you don't get sick so you can be around them, and trying to do any and all research to hold onto that hope that a miracle could happen. Once we lost dad, it was hard to go back to "normal". Luckily I had the support of an amazing family, good friends, and great coworkers to help me through it.   

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Network is there to help support those in need.  PanCan is important to me because I want to help the next person who is diagnosed get their miracle, but if not, I want them to have the support that is needed for this rollercoaster and to truly enjoy their life. 

I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
